of the u.n. general assembly coming to a close. world leaders taking the podium to speak about issues important to their nations. palestinian president mahmoud abbas accusing israel of ethnic cleansing for building settlements in east jerusalem. >> [ speaking native language ] >> interpreter: israel refuses to end the occupation and refuses to allow the palestinian people to attain their rights and freedom and rejects the establishment of the state of palestine. >> meanwhile, israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, responding to that issue, but using most of his time to speak out about iran's nuclear intentions. >> the relevant question is not when iran will get the bomb -- the relevant question is, at what stage can we no longer stop iran from getting the bomb? the red line must be drawn on iran's nuclear-enrichment program. >> the taliban claiming responsibility for a blast in eastern afghanistan. a suicide bomber ramming his motorcycle, packed with explosives, into a patrol of afghan and international forces. the attack coming a day after a firefight broke out at an eastern af
that wasn't true. they perpetuated that lie in the u.n. when our u.n. ambassador said it was because of a youtube video, she knew better, and the president certainly did. the truth does come out. the cover-up is sometimes worse than the crime, but not in this instance when an ambassador is dead and three other americans as well. megyn: hindsight is 2020. he looked back with our ambassador dead and three others dead, we can see that security was not adequate in benghazi. but it is disturbing to hear about this according to colonel wood, that not only are we going to reduce what we have in place. >> you know, there are a couple of observations that i have to make. just three weeks ago, this happened. certainly, this serviceman has the right to speak out about what he knows. but it passes as strange to me that right now, efforts being made to buy these folks and bring them to justice, it may be disinformation. i know that brad will find this shocking, this information may assist in the effort. we do not know. wait a second, brad, to rush to judgment on this, simply because it is four we
not be deployed without u.n. approval. then in the mid 1980's, he ran on the basis of cutting most of our major defense programs. in 1991, he voted against desert storm. it's a consistent pattern over time of always being on the wrong side of defense issues. a little tough talk in the midst of a campaign or as part of a presidential debate cannot obscure a record of 30 years of being on the wrong side of defense issues. and they give absolute no ibbed case based on that record of being willing to go forward and aggressively pursue the war on terror with the kind of strategy that will defeat our enemies and will guarantee the united states doesn't get attacked by the likes of al qaeda. >> we'll get back to that topic. tonight we mentioned afghanistan. we believe that osama bin laden is hiding perhaps in a cave somewhere along the afghan-pakistan border. if you get a second term, what is your plan to capture him? and then to neutralize those who have sprong up to replace him? >> when we have -- we've never let up on osama bin laden from day one. we've actual live pursued him. we've captured thous
of what everyone has talked about, what president obama talked-about at the u.n., the cascade of proliferation, the unraveling of the regime. that is what would follow from the saudi opposition of nuclear weapons, because it does not probably stop saudi arabia. there are other countries in the area that will want them as well. preventing that will become a very high priority for united states foreign policy. and by preventing that, i mean preventing the saudis from responding. we do not want to end up there, but think that is where we are the moment it becomes clear that they have nuclear weapons. what we do? one thing we will do, and quite confident is to apply the cold war deterrence model can and try to persuade the saudis that they do not need nuclear weapons if they are the victim of a nuclear attack. i think there's a lot of reason to think that we might not be as persuasive and making that case to the saudi government as we work to the germans and other allies during the cold war. another thing, we will go to the saudis and say, we will keep in place in sanctions regime
to the u.n. susan royce went on five sunday shows and said the attack may have been spontaneous and not necessarily trim, but she said at the time she, quote, relied squarely and solely on the information the intelligence community provided to her, information she said represented the intelligence community's best current assessment as of the date of her television appearances and that is not an acceptable explanation for republican senators mccain, ayotte, and ron johnson who say either the obama administration is misleading congress and the american people, or it's blaming the entire failure on the intelligence community. ambassador rice claims the administration launched a comprehensive effort to determine what happened in bengazhi, but the administration failed to secure the scene of the terrorist attack for three weeks. a state department memo showed the security team in benghazi was denied a dc-3 aircraft they were asked for before the attack. there is nothing to prove a plane would have prevented the murders of those four miles hour. in washington, peter dosy, fox news. >

for the u.s. or the syria or the u.n. or really anybody else to talk to about cutting a deal or finding a way out other than continuing bloodshed. can you talk about the political opposition? >> that's a great question as i said in the talk. the only absentee is the great debating society. the national congress, the opposition group created in the aftermath of the revolution. these guys have no support on the ground. people don't know them. their names and faces, inside the country, and they think we don't care. they are not in the country. they distributed aid, and they are quiet, but they are not anywhere close to the front lines, not gaining what they need, there's a lot of fighting, and a lot resigned. the islamists are taking over, certain facts are supported, you know, qatar and the french are trying to really mold them into some type of cohesive organization, and it's not working or going anywhere. i don't think you'll see anything out of the snc come out. that said, there are certain people that, you know, i think would be good leaders, the people i've met with good ideas. they
